Milford State Park Reviews
Our cabin(#3) was comfortable, and had a great view of Milford Lake. Number 4 and 5 also have great views. For larger groups, Cabins 6 and 7 are close to the lake. more »
Beautiful Peaceful Campground (we stayed at Hickory Hollow); well kept, lovely pull through site, back faced woodland area, front faced lake view and grassy field; we saw a flock of wild turkeys... more »
We stayed in Prairie View, very nice camp host extremely helpful. Very quite community, loved the view and the wildlife in the area. Would not mind spending more time there.
This state park is located in a shady, wooded area. Lake has decent fishing. If you want camp by the water make reservations ahead, as these spots fill up fast.
